Guru Investment Theses on KVH Industries Inc

Needham Funds Commentary on KVH Industries - Apr 08, 2016

I believe KVH Industries, Inc. (NASDAQ:KVHI) is positioned to be the Netflix of the commercial maritime industry, which has over 200,000 vessels. KVH has spent the last four years investing in content and technology for IP-MobileCast, its subscription-based service launched in late 2014 that provides news, entertainment and onboard training to crews on ships at sea.



KVH alone has the IP-MobileCast satellite technology and the content rights. It also has the number one market share of satellite communications antennas, and demand for communications and content should grow. I believe KVH's installed base of antennas, news, DVD and training course customers provide an available market with years of potential growth.



Is there a margin of safety in investing now? KVH is valued at just 0.9x enterprise value/revenues. The company has been profitable for 10 of the last 11 years and had only a small loss in 2009. In addition to the maritime communications business, it is also a leader in fiber-optic gyroscopes for stabilization of self-driving cars, drones and other exciting new applications, and of TACNAV systems used on military vehicles for geo-location when GPS is out of range.



Martin Kits Van Heyningen is a visionary CEO who has led the company through a number of strategic transitions, and has a plan for improving life at sea for mariners by bringing the benefits of big data to the maritime industry. I believe the company is poised to reap benefits from years of investing in IP-MobileCast and its other initiatives.

KVH Announces New Connectivity as a Service (CaaS) Offering
KVH Receives $3.5 Million Order for TACNAV Tactical Navigation Systems
KVH Ships its 7,000th mini-VSAT Broadband System, Continuing its Dominant Role in the Maritime VSAT Market

Designed and manufactured by KVH, the TracPhone® systems provide satellite broadband connectivity to yachts and commercial vessels around the world, and are a testament to the company’s innovation in mobile connectivity solutions

MIDDLETOWN, R.I., March 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (NASDAQ:KVHI), announced that it has shipped more than 7,000 mini-VSAT Broadbandsm systems, designed and manufactured by KVH to provide mobile connectivity at sea. The TracPhone V-series satellite communications antenna systems are currently in use on everything from small recreational sailboats cruising the coastline to 1,000-foot commercial freighters transiting the world’s oceans. KVH launched the mini-VSAT Broadband service just 10 years ago, in July 2007, and has seen the popularity of the service grow, coinciding with an overall trend in the maritime industry toward increased reliance on broadband connectivity. As recently as September 2016, a leading industry analyst, Northern Sky Research, reported that KVH’s mini-VSAT Broadband customers account for 29% of the vessels using Ku-band service, more than double the 14% share of the nearest competitor. This dominant market share continues to be supported by significant customer wins from leading commercial maritime operators. The TracPhone V-series antenna systems are noteworthy for their technical innovation and performance, having won numerous awards, including the National Marine Electronics Association’s 2016 product of excellence award. “Our mini-VSAT Broadband network is robust and fully global, and we are thrilled that thousands of our TracPhone V-series antenna systems are already in service around the world,” says Martin Kits van Heyningen, KVH’s CEO. “Our continuing dominance in the VSAT market is testimony to our heritage of innovation. It’s even more exciting to look ahead to how we can augment our existing network and enable KVH to support the dramatic surge in demand for data that the shipping industry is projected to experience over the next 10 years.” KVH’s advanced TracPhone antenna systems include the TracPhone V11-IP, a 1.1 meter diameter, dual-mode C/Ku-band antenna for global VSAT connectivity; the TracPhone V7-IP, a 60 cm diameter enterprise-grade antenna for Ku-band service worldwide; and the TracPhone V3-IP, a 37 cm diameter Ku-band ultra-compact maritime VSAT antenna. All three TracPhone V-IP systems feature the Integrated CommBoxTM Modem (ICM), a streamlined belowdecks unit that replaces the need for a rack full of components and integrates all antenna control, onboard network management, and modem functions in one small box. The ICM also receives onboard news, entertainment, and operations content sent via KVH’s innovative IP-MobileCastTM content delivery service. KVH launched the mini-VSAT Broadband service with a commitment to provide fast, affordable satellite Internet and phone services via compact antennas at a time when slow data and expensive airtime costs were the norm. In 2012 – only five years after the network’s launch – industry reports found that mini-VSAT Broadband was the market share leader in maritime VSAT, a position KVH has retained consistently in subsequent industry reports. KVH continues to take an innovative approach to its mini-VSAT Broadband service and TracPhone V-series antenna systems. For example, the company is currently focused on enhancing its mini-VSAT Broadband network with new high throughput satellite (HTS) capacity that will provide higher speed Internet services to customers.

KVH Announces New Versions of its DSP-1760 High-performance Single- and Multi-axis Gyros  

The unhoused DSP-1760 is an extremely accurate 1-, 2-, or 3-axis fiber optic gyro (FOG) particularly well-suited for demanding stabilization and pointing applications
MIDDLETOWN, R.I., March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- KVH Industries, Inc., (NASDAQ:KVHI), has introduced three unhoused variants of its popular high-performance DSP-1760 FOG. The new unhoused DSP-1760 variants offer application engineers and system integrators the ability to more easily install one, two, or three compact FOG axes into higher-level systems, and still obtain the high-performance attributes of the KVH FOGs.
The small, lightweight, unhoused DSP-1760s provide such characteristics as user-selectable data and baud rates, high bandwidth/low latency and low noise, and increased flexibility in mounting and installation – all critical attributes in applications where size, weight, and accuracy are of prime importance. The unhoused DSP-1760s are particularly well-suited to stabilization and pointing systems such as gimbals, for example, which require all of those performance characteristics.

The unhoused DSP-1760s’ flexible interface is designed for ease of integration in new applications, as well as upgrades to existing systems. A developer’s kit is available for the unhoused DSP-1760s, providing benefits of rapid design and integration; the kit includes the user interface software and all components needed to immediately connect the FOG to a computer to configure, evaluate, and test the unit.

“The unhoused DSP-1760 products allow higher-level system integrators new flexibility to quickly add KVH’s high-performance FOGs into purpose-built packages and end-systems,” says Roger Ward, KVH’s director of FOG product development. “The unhoused DSP-1760s offer extremely high sampling rates and lower latency times, with up to three independent axial rate sensors for today’s advanced stabilization and pointing applications. Given their accuracy, the unhoused DSP-1760s can also be used as components within higher-level navigation systems. In selecting gyros for their systems, application engineers and system integrators often have to choose between performance and ease of installation and integration, but with the unhoused DSP-1760 variants, they have products that provide all of these attributes, at an affordable cost.”

The DSP-1760 unhoused variants offer exceptional performance in bias stability, scale factor, and angle random walk. The unhoused variants use KVH’s exclusive E•Core® ThinFiber, the world’s smallest D-shaped optical fiber. By reducing the overall diameter of the fiber to just 170 microns (a 30% reduction from KVH’s original E•Core polarization-maintaining fiber), the resulting E•Core ThinFiber enables a greater length of fiber to be wound onto a bobbin, thereby increasing the accuracy of the gyros. 
 
“By making the DSP-1760s available as unhoused variants, we are providing maximum versatility for the most challenging designs,” says Jay Napoli, KVH’s vice president of FOG/OEM sales. “Customers are getting the high performance of the world’s smallest precision FOGs, coupled with the flexibility to configure and install one, two, or three axes of FOGs into their systems to achieve the best possible solutions.”

In addition to offering the DSP-1760 in nine configurations (six housed and three unhoused), KVH offers an entire line of FOGs and FOG-based inertial systems that are utilized in cutting-edge applications including sensor fusion-based navigation, guidance, stabilization, and positioning solutions. KVH FOGs are in use in production programs for a wide range of commercial applications, including underwater unmanned vehicle navigation, rail/track geometry measurement systems, land-based street mapping platforms, and air, land, and maritime autonomous platforms. KVH FOGs and FOG-based IMUs are also in use in numerous prototype and development programs for autonomous cars.

Note to Editors: For more information about the DSP-1760 and KVH’s entire line of FOGs, inertial measurement units, and inertial navigation systems, visit KVH’s “Guiding Intelligent Systems” website, www.kvh.com/unmanned.
